drop foot

hey all, i have a question. is there anyone else out there who randomly woke up with drop foot? it happened to me about a month ago and the sports doc i went to referred me for an EMG which i am getting tuesday. anyone else had one of these? i am scared to death about this and wondering if there was anyone else out there in this situation. what is an EMG like?

Re: drop foot

if it is what im thinking of, its performed by sticking an instrument into the perineal nerve. the instrument is the exact same size of a needle. you shouldnt feel this since you have drop foot. they basically send electro-shocks to the nerve to see if there are any muscular movements.

i could be wrong, but i think this is the procedure you are talkin about.

my foot drop is from a football injury about 4 years ago. had a nerve transplant that didnt work. so now i have a tendon transfer. this is a procedure that disconnects the tendon that controls the inward movement of your foot and reconnects it to allow that muscle to lift your foot.
